Subject Re: Okay to purge trace table?
Date Fri, 07 Jun 2013 01:00:09 GMT
Does it make sense to create a JIRA ticket asking for an age-off iterator
to be the default on the trace table? Maybe set for something like two
weeks? If we don't add a default age-off iterator, where should the
documentation be changed to talk about this topic? Does the user manual
talk about the trace table?
